Top Ten Reasons Why Old Nickelodeon is Better Than Modern Nickelodeon


The Top Ten

1 Old Nick had better shows

None of the modern Nickelodeon shows are good. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012), Harvey Beaks, and The Loud House are exceptions.

Nickelodeon started in 1993. You are blinded by nostalgia and childhood. It was not better shows its nostalgia.

Some examples were Legends of the Hidden Temple, Catdog, Rugrats, Ren And Stimpy, and old SpongeBob. Today, it's crap like Breadwinners or Sanjay And Craig. - OhioStateBuckeyes

So much better shows, these were the days. Current shows are ruining kids minds.

2 Old Nick was more appropriate

Now all the shows are about suicide or butts. - OhioStateBuckeyes

And controversial (Ren & Stimpy and Rocko's Modern Life) - Kid_ethinederland

3 Nick Gas

Now they joke about gas. I miss old nick - soccerobsessed

And they literally screwed it up. Plus we had Ariana Grande once on Nickelodeon. Disney is better than Nickelodeon, even though it sometimes welcomes Ariana Grande to make my ear bleed big time.

Why can't they bring back Double Dare? They brought back Figure It Out. - OhioStateBuckeyes

Double Dare is coming back, but the commercials are disturbing - ShopkinsLover

4 Better educational programming

Yup. Blues Clues and Jacks Big Music Show were great - soccerobsessed

No. Children should only watch T.V. to be entertained, not learn! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

We will never forget Blues Clues! - OhioStateBuckeyes

Back in the 80's, Nickelodeon aired high-quality educational documentaries. In the 90's and 00's, at least Nick Jr. had highly educational shows. Nowadays, not even the Nick Jr. shows seem to be educational. This is what I have observed at least. - anonygirl

5 It was actually creative

You choose. CatDog and Doug or Sanjay and Craig and Breadwinners. Choose wisely or immediate death (not really) - FrozenisOverrated

Now they're just running outta ideas. - OhioStateBuckeyes

6 Patrick wasn't such a jerk

Patrick Has A Lack Of Control In Some Pre-Movie Episodes.
He Tried To Kill Spongebob In "Nature Pants"
He Went On A Rampage Throughout The Amusement Park In "Valentine's Day"
He Kicked Sandy In "Band Geeks"
Spongebob & Patrick Both Bully Each Other IN "No Weenies Allowed"

Reviews: Reckless

He improved himself in seasons 9B and above.

Only in Seasons 4 - 9. In Seasons 10 and above, Patrick wasn't quite a jerk.

They ruined one of the best characters:( - nintendofan126

7 Boring Sitcoms

Horrible sitcoms. Old Nickelodeon had Kenan & Kel and Drake & Josh which were actually funny while nowadays they have Game Shakers which isn't funny - PeeledBanana

But it’s gone downhill - soccerobsessed

1. SpongeBob SquarePants
2. Rugrats
3. The Fairly OddParents - PeeledBanana

9 Way too much Nick Jr.

No variety of shows

10 They didn't air educational crap on Nick back then

They kind of did. But it was actually good - soccerobsessed

Well this "educational crap" shaped the childhood of millions - PeeledBanana

That was back in the 70s and 80s. Then one bad year in 1988, they added Nick Jr.

The Contenders

11 The jokes barely qualify as jokes.
12 They think their product is amazing.
13 The Jimmy/Timmy crossover was the only good crossover on Nick

And I love both shows. - PizzaGuy

14 Breadwinners Breadwinners Breadwinners is a 2014 animated comedy television series produced by Nickelodeon. It is about the adventures of SwaySway and Buhdeuce, two ducks who drive in a rocket van delivering bread to their customers.

Best Nickelodeon show - Breadwinnersislofe

Worst show ever

Cancel This Show Now! - CuteGirlJigglypuff

More like Breadlosers! This show sucks! - RiverClanRocks

15 Most of their shows are the same thing with minor changes.

Correction: with MAJOR changes

16 Invader ZIM Invader ZIM Invader Zim is an American animated television series created by Jhonen Vasquez for Nickelodeon. The series centers on an extraterrestrial named Zim from the planet Irk, and his mission to conquer Earth and enslave the human race along with his malfunctioning robot servant GIR.

oh yes - ShopkinsLover

17 Squidward wasn't tortured as much
18 It's too immature
19 Those awful movies
20 Inappropriate shows
21 The splat is better than the new logo
22 Kids choice awards are just awful

And the nominees for the best music groups are...

One Direction
Blood on the Dance Floor
Jonas Brothers
Insane Clown Posse

And the best artists are

Justin Bieber
Nicki Minaj
Lil Wayne
Miley Cyrus

And the winners were One Direction and Justin Bieber both with about 90% of the votes.

Out of all the artists/bands you said, there's only 1 that I tolerate and it's Justin Bieber. The rest of them are bad and terrible.

23 Just being greedy
24 Fanboy & Chum Chum Fanboy & Chum Chum Fanboy & Chum Chum is an American 3D CGI animated television series created by Eric Robles for Nickelodeon. It is based on Fanboy, an animated short created by Robles for Nicktoons and Frederator Studios, which was broadcast August 14, 2009 to July 12, 2014 on Random! Cartoons. The series was first more.
25 Old Nickelodeon was more timeless while modern Nickelodeon is too trendy.

Its trendy to say Old Nickelodeon is better than nowadays. You feel cool, trendy and edgy to hate everything.

So true. That goes with any other channels like Cartoon Network also - soccerobsessed
